Insecurity Blanket

My name is old you And I'm creepin in Reminding you of past sin Of who you were back then You say its under the blood That its gone forever But no matter how far you run We are chained together I'm a people pleaser Do whatever they say But if I mess up, do wrong They'd all run away Would my friends stay If I told them no Disappointing everyone wherever I go I stare in the mirror almost everyday Hating, disgusted on what it displays It chooses to say whatever I allow Ugly eyes,big thighs Got a unibrow Wrong skin color, wrong jean size Maybe if I wore a disguise Be considered a prize I'm stressed out Got enough on my plate Doesn't help with the jokers Saying I'm overweight And I push it off Try to ignore it all It's only behind doors when I let tears fall You say I'm royalty You say I'm destiny But I've been drug Through the mud of insecurity Tried to be holy According to your word But my conscience is blurred from the lies I've head Time to block them out Listen to your voice It's in Your grace I'm new and can rejoice So I'm making a choice Be all I can I be Saying goodbye tonight To insecurity

Jessica when you can write as good as this you don't need to have any self doubt or insecurity, it is very well written and holds the reader right till the end, just listen to and follow your own feelings.. well done..David
